SPD has set the task of preventing any accidents that may result in fatalities or serious environmental consequences. This objective is embodied in the Goal Zero slogan. It is not easy to stay at zero, but SPD has everything in place for the purpose, in particular, it has leaders for whom safety takes priority, and well-trained people who will lead by example of how to pursue operations without injuries, accidents and failures.
SPD has developed a balanced HSSE management system. This system is based on the statutory Russian requirements and international practice. It consists of clear-cut corporate principles, standards, rules and arrangements designed to ensure a safe work place and to reduce to a minimum the risks to a person’s health and safety, and to the environment. SPD also employs best-in-class technologies and equipment to ensure safety to people and the environment. SPD now holds certificates of compliance with international standards in environmental safety (ISO 14001:2004) and industrial and labour safety (OHSAS 18001:2007).
